Regarding this book, Etienne Gilson: "I consider it as being, without possible comparison, the best book ever written on Saint Thomas ... the few readers who have spent twenty or thirty years in studying St. Thomas Aquinas, and who, perhaps, have themselves published two or three volumes on the subject, cannot fail to perceive that the so-called 'wit' of Chesterton has put their scholarship to shame." [ "Letter to Chesterton's editor", in Pieper, Josef, Guide to Thomas Aquinas, University of Notre Dame Press, pp. 6,7].
